Family always finds each other.
Colin is just fucking with us haha
Maybe Hook’s shirts are progressively exposing more and more of his chest in order to symbolize how he has been exposing more and more of his heart.
(Or maybe Colin is just fucking with us. Whichever.)
Fun Story: My director kept telling me and my tenor sax buddy to play softer. No matter what we did, it wasn’t soft enough for him. So getting frustrated, I told my buddy “Dont play this time. Just fake it”
Our Band Director then informed us we sounded perfect.
To my readers: “p” means quiet, “pp” means really quiet. I’ve never seen “pppp” before haha.
On the contrast, “f” means loud, and “ffff” probably means so loud you go unconscious.
I had ffff in a piece once and my conductor told me to play as loudly as physically possible without falling off my chair…
Me and my trombone buddies had “ffff” and he sat next to me and played so hard that he fell out of his chair.
The lengths we go for music.
Okay yeah so I play the bass clarinet and the amount of air you have to move and the stiffness of the reed means it only has two settings and that is loud and louder, with an optional LOUDEST that includes a 50% probability of HORRIBLE CROAKING NOISE which is the bass equivalent of the ubiquitous clarinet shriek.
One day, when I was in concert band in high school, we got a new piece handed out for the first time, and there was a strange little commotion back in the tuba section — whispering, and pointing at something in the music, and swatting at each other’s hands all shhh don’t call attention to it. And although they did attract the attention of basically everyone else in the band, they managed to avoid being noticed by the band director, who gave us a few minutes to look over our parts and then said, “All right, let’s run through it up to section A.”
And here we are, cheerfully playing along, sounding reasonably competent — but everyone, when they have the attention to spare, is keeping an eye on the tuba players. They don’t come in for the first eight measures or so, and then when they do come in, what we see is:
[reeeeeeally deep breath]
[COLOSSAL FOGHORN NOISE]
The entire band stops dead, in the cacophonous kind of way that a band stops when it hasn’t actually been cued to stop. The band director doesn’t even say anything, just looks straight back at the tubas and makes a helpless sort of why gesture.
In unison, the tuba players defend themselves: “THERE WERE FOUR F’S.”
FFFF is not really a rational dynamic marking for any instrument, but for the love of all that is holy why would you put it in a tuba part.
This is the best band post
Everyone else go home
Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this
which is 8 fortes. We were shocked until,
that is 24 fortes who the fuck does that
Who does that?
This guy. Take a good look - that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose.
More like Julius Fuckit
Bless this post!

TRY TO TELL ME HE’S HAPPY ABOUT HAVING TO DO THIS. TRY.
OBVIOUSLY he misses her terribly and wants nothing more than to see her and be with her. OBVIOUSLY. But if you try to tell me that he’s being selfish for taking away her life of lies, clearly he doesn’t WANT to do it. LOOK AT HIM. He’s JUST as saddened by the fact that she can’t have that life without the savior responsibility as she is.
Now, though, I think he has a new goal. They both know now that she can’t escape being the savior forever. His goal now is to build a life for her that her happiness, her family, and her savior magic can coexist. He wants to be a part of that, obviously, but we’ve seen before that he’ll give up his own happiness for Emma’s.
HE ONLY WANTS HER TO BE HAPPY GUYS EVEN IF THAT MEANS HIM BEING MISERABLE AND IT IS SO VERY OUCH
Did Hook have to give up/trade for the potion?
What did Hook have to trade/give up to get back to ‘Our World’?
The last time Emma was separated from someone she had feelings for (granted the situation was totally different and she was betrayed), when she met that person again later, they had moved on from her. When Hook tells her this, HE’S TELLING HER HE DIDN’T MOVE ON IN ANY CAPACITY - NOT EVEN A THOUGHT ABOUT ANOTHER WOMAN. THAT HE STILL LOVES HER, THERE’S NOBODY ELSE, AND THERE NEVER WILL BE.
Watch her face in the fourth gif. She realizes that, but also something else - maybe she was kind of EXPECTING him to have at least been involved with someone else. She says she’s glad to see he hasn’t changed, but the conversation isn’t referring to romantic feelings until Hook steers it there. When he says he had a pirate’s life to get back to, well. It would be natural for Emma in that moment to assume, since she’s used to being hurt and abandoned after people tell her they love her, that Hook had regressed while she was away and probably had, well. A dalliance before trying to come back to her. Neal did. Why wouldn’t Hook?
HER SURPRISE THAT HE CLEARLY FEELS JUST AS STRONGLY AS HE DID, IF NOT MORE STRONGLY, IS JUST A KNIFE IN THE GUT. LOOK AT IT.
That’s why the inclusion of Henry telling her that not all guys are like his dad is so important. Killian had the opportunity to busy himself with someone else but is very clearly telling her here that he didn’t. If you think the attempted TLK doesn’t come to her mind after he says there was nothing for him in the EF, YOU ARE WRONG. SHE SEES that he’s in it for the long haul, that he truly loves her, that the kiss wasn’t a completely baseless thing to try. HE REALLY BELIEVES IN HOW MUCH HE LOVES HER and this scene is when she sees it’s still just as strong as it was before they were separated.
JUST GET TOGETHER ALREADY
I hate growing up. Ever since I was little, I always dreamed of having a fairytale ending, of a far away future where everything would be a happily ever after. But it’s not real and what is real is so much pointless crap called SATs and AP exams and grades and people who just want to fit in.
My sister and I used to be really close and play pretend all the time. I would be Harry and Hermione and she would be Ron and Ginny and Fleur. Or maybe we’d make up a skit about people controlling elements like in the TV show Avatar. Hell, we even made a musical out of Super Mario Characters. But fairytales were always where it was at, and when I played pretend with her, nothing else mattered. I could control the future and if something didn’t go well I could just stop playing for a little while.
But this is real life. There are no do overs. There aren’t people who just really GET you and genuinely CARE about you. People are always leaving. My own SISTER left me in exchange for makeup and friends and watching Supernatural holed up in her room all day. I never see her anymore.
And so I just want there to be someone who knows what it’s like, someone who is going through the same things I am. A friend of sorts.
If you can relate, PLEASE pop me an ask. I’m just feeling really lonely and like nothing matters and I’m looking to my tumblr buddies for a friend. I want to get to know someone like me. Someone who’s a little obsessive, really emotional and deep, anyone who knows what it feels like to always be left behind and maybe knows how to get over it.

so much subtext packed into such a tiny little moment
besides being a callback to the midseason finale and serving to demonstrate how everything in emma’s cursed life has been flipped on its head, it’s also a…

I just needed to see this damn hug.
